This is just because of individual body immunity.

People can have strong body immunity and that does not let the virus increase in number, so they remain healthy as the uninfected people. The body immunity can be due to;

1) Genetics.

2) Healthy lifestyle (active life, good food).

3) Positive attitude towards life, mental strength.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Genetics as for as what could you explain that

Genes come from our family. They are hardware and they help us forming functions of the proteins which are software. A strong genetic workup gives us body immunity which fights to all malware.

It is privilege assisting you.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
